A Comparative Study Among Several Imaging Methods for the Detection of Primary and Metastatic Sites of GEP-NETs. Abstract #1031

Introduction: GEP-NETs staging are essential for any therapeutic manipulation
Aim(s): To evaluate the sensitivity of several imaging methods in detection of GEP-NETs and their metastases
Materials and methods: 62 patients (48 confirmed GEP-NETs/14 suspected disease) were enrolled. All were investigated for primary and metastatic sites with somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS), chest –X ray, upper abdominal US, chest CT and upper and lower abdominal CT

#163 Clinical value of MRI DWI and (Gd-EOB)-DTPA to assess liver involvement in patients with advanced gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs)
Introduction: Standard MRI, including breath-hold techniques with SE T1 and T2 weighted images, biochemical shift, and 3D GRE and also T1 images after gadolinium enhancement Gd-DTPA, are useful in detecting liver lesions in patients with advanced GEP-NET. Recently, new algorithms of MRI, including diffusion-weighted imaging MRI (DWI) and i.v. (Gd-EOB)-DTPA (Primovist) contrast enhancement, seems to be promising in the detection of liver deposits.

#59 Incidence and clinical significance of adrenal masses in patients with gastrenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: The widespread application of modern imaging modalities, mainly computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), has revealed a 2-3% incidence of inadvertently discovered adrenal masses, the majority of which are non-functioning benign adrenal adenomas. In the presence of a known malignancy, such lesions have a more than 30% incidence of being metastases. As patients with gastrenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETS) have mainly well-differentiated and slow-growing tumors and are subject to routine abdominal imaging for disease staging or during follow-up, it is important to study the incidence and significance of such lesions based on the recently introduced TNM classification system.
